My Birthday Gift

What would you ask for a Birthday present?

I received mine the day I was born and have continued to receive it each passing year. It is a gift of Love, Promise and Hope. It is called Israel. It is called Home.

The mere thought that my people would remain stateless, homeless, a victim, unprotected and scattered away from their spiritual, cultural, historical and rightful Home is a myth, a wishful narrative spread by our demonizers.

The modern day state of Israel in its ancient Homeland in Eretz Yisrael and the Jewish people are here to stay. They are here not only to survive but to continue to thrive, prosper, contribute and share.

If there is one wish, one precious present I want for every birthday for as many birthdays as G-d has allotted me on this blessed piece of earth, it is to wake up on that day and thank Him for the gift of being an Israeli Jew. I could never ask for more. I never would.
May G-d bless Israel forever and ever!
